About the Movie

Magic is everywhere in Disney's The Sorcerer's Apprentice—the fun family adventure from the creators of National Treasure. Balthazar Blake (Nicolas Cage) is a modern-day sorcerer with his hands full defending Manhattan against dark forces. When a seemingly average kid shows hidden potential, Balthazar takes his reluctant recruit on a crash course in the art and science of magic to become the ultimate sorcerer's apprentice. Experience more extraordinary thrills, heart-stopping action and spectacular special effects than you can imagine as these unlikely partners show us that the real world is far more magical than we ever knew!

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: The Sorcerer's Apprentice should be rated U for Untouched by Human Hands. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Jul 15, 2010

Rotten: As Balthazar, Cage doesn't disappoint. He's just manic enough to keep the character from becoming too predictable. More's the pity, then, that a pro like him has to cede so much screen time to his character's young protege. – Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post, Sep 25, 2010

Fresh: A big gob of mythical makeover and special effects-freewheeling fun. – Tom Long, Detroit News, Jul 15, 2010

Fresh: There is much that's appealing, from the performances to the scene where Turteltaub re-creates a live-action version of the classic scene from Disney's Fantasia. – Nancy Churnin, Dallas Morning News, Jul 16, 2010

Very Entertaining Movie!

You really can't go wrong with a Nicolas Cage movie. It's amazing how you can really use the so called professional critics to tell you what movies are good to watch, and what movies aren't. Just take their rating and "reverse" it. If they don't like the movie, go see it. Hello, this is a "fantasy", science fiction, type movie. It's not a drama. It entertains. It has action, and great special effects. It was well worth the money to see it at the theater. And, I look forward to purchasing it for my home movie collection.

Better than it looks

This movie actually surprised me. I thought this was going to be dumb but it turned out good.

Let me break down what I thought

Watching commericial: Either gonna be stupid or good
First five minutes of movie: Alright, this is going to be really stupid.
Halfway: I want to know what happens so I'll keep watching.
End: That was actually really good
